Supporting Educators and Students: Implementing Instructional Coaching in Mathematics

Wednesday February 1, 2023
12:45 - 2:15 PM
Room 143-145

Improving K-5 student math outcomes is critical because of the impact of the pandemic on student math growth. Elementary educators play a critical role in improving student outcomes and benefit from support through instructional coaching to improve knowledge and practice that can lead to increased student achievement (Kraft et al., 2018). State and regional educational agencies and districts have key roles in system wide efforts to develop, implement and scale instructional coaching. The Alabama State Department of Education is engaged in strategic development and scaling up of K-5 math coaching across the state, particularly for the lowest performing schools. This session highlights the creation of that system of support for district and school leaders as they implement effective coaching initiatives, with examples from work in districts in Alabama. Participants will engage in interactive discussions of opportunities and challenges to develop, support and scale effective coaching.
